Faulty Air Con

04 August 2013 - 06:29 AM

Hi guys.

Since I purchased my ford focus 1.6 lx 2000 petrol, I noticed every 5-10 seconds that there was a clicking noise. I have been told that it is the air con coming on or something. Only problem is I think it's stuck on as when I push the air con button nothing changes and there is no light there to indicate it is on? So basically what I'm saying is. Helppppp


Ford Focus Instrument Cluster/dashboard

Hi all

Just wandering what lights I should see stay on my dashboard/instrument cluster when the ignition is on the second setting (just before firing the engine) as I have the battery, oil, handbrake and a small orange pump looking light. They stay I until I start the engine?!?!


I Have The Worst Luck(Helpppppp)

Hi all.

So basically Iv just bought a new (old) car also being my third car within the last year but of course as it was cheap £999 it came with some problems. The car is a ford focus 1.6 lx (2000) and here come the problems;

1. The gear stick spring had snapped so was a wee bit floppy - easy enough to fix thanks to a great guide on this forum.

2. My speedo dropped out while driving, which was odd. And then mileage just kind of flat lined. But then after a while they came back. Iv been reading up and could possibly be the speed sensor?!?

3. The car is very juddery when for example I am in third and come to a round about, I slow down to prepare to stop but don't need to so I have slowed right down but accelerate again in third, but the car seems to hold back the power and put up a fight by knocking me back and forth a little. Maybe a slight misfire?!

4. (This isn't so much a problem, just a question) when I stop day for example at lights. The car seems to vibrate a fair bit, almost as if I'm revving a little, but the rev gauge doesn't move so it isn't revving. Is this normal?

Thanks for taking the time to read this guys and I look forward to your responses

Iphone/android App

Just out of interest. Is there any chance of a ford owners forum app being created? Would make a lot of people's lives a lot easier than having to go on the Internet and search. And I'm sure it would bring a lot more traffic to your site :)
